During an appearance on the “Today” show this morning, Michelle Obama took a swipe a former Attorney General Eric Holder over his saying the other day that instead of “going high” when they “go low,” Dems should “kick them”:
Michelle Obama says she "absolutely" stands by her motto "When they go low, we go high" – asked by @SavannahGuthrie to respond to Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton, she replies, "Fear is not a proper motivator. Hope wins out."

Think of the children, she exclaimed while taking a shot at her husband’s good buddy:
Michelle Obama responds to Holder “kick them” comment: “Fear is not — it's not a proper motivator. Hope wins out. And if you think about how you want your kids to be raised, how you want them to think about life & their opportunities, do you want them afraid of their neighbors?”

We are so here for this “FIGHT!” Have a watch:
Michelle claps back at Eric Holder for adulterating her "We go high" line saying Dems should 'kick' Republicans.
"Fear is not a proper motivator." She brings up her children, "Do you want them afraid of their neighbors? Do you want them angry? Do you want them vengeful?" pic.twitter.com/BBkW3iLYyc

Funny enough, Michelle Obama now agrees with … Donald Trump?
Trump responds to Eric Holder saying, 'When they go low, we kick them': "That's a disgusting statement for him to make. For him to make a statement like that is a very dangerous statement." https://t.co/W9zI2bjIQQ

That might be a stretch. But it’s also a stretch to think Dems will actually listen to Michelle as it’s not the party of shouty mobs who chase Republicans out of restaurants:
Short of Michelle herself running, it’s really hard to see the Dems of 2019 embracing “when they go low, we go high” https://t.co/5Iq2VETtJJ

Let’s hope “kick them” is as violent as it gets, because it pretty bad:
Except for that screaming at GOP in restaurants & airports, beheading video sent to @CoryGardner’s wife, Sheila Jackson Lee’s staff doxxing GOP, & @RandPaul’s wife having to sleep with a gun. Other than that? https://t.co/oKFV5z6ToL
